Adventurous new issue
One hundred and fifty years ago Lewis Carroll’s classic book Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland was published. To celebrate this fact Royal Mail will issue on January 6 a ten-stamp sheet depicting the adventures of Alice re-animated by illustrator Grahame Baker-Smith.
On the stamps are the unforgettable characters, such as White Rabbit, the Cheshire Cat, and of course Alice herself. The stamps are set in an unusual way on the sheet, with a mix of values: The White Rabbit (2nd), Down the Rabbit Hole (2nd), Drink Me (1st), The White Rabbit’s House (1st), The Cheshire Cat (81p), A Mad Tea-Party (81p), The Queen of Hearts (1.28 pounds), The Game of Croquet (1.28 pounds), Alice’s Evidence (1.47 pounds) and A Pack of Cards (1.47 pounds).
Alice in Wonderland, issued by the Maldives in 1980 …..
… and this from Grenada, with scenes from the Disney-animated film, issued in 1987.
